The more time goes by, the more I feel comfortable in myself and the way I choose to express myself in terms of clothes. My birthday is coming up next month which tends makes me reflect and look back at year that has passed.
The past months have been filled with travels to some of my favourite cities, never in my life have I traveled this intensely in a short amount of time. Besides from exploring the new, culture, cousins and encounter of new relationships, the best souvenir I bring home is personal growth. Regardless if I have been traveling alone (which I strongly recommend everyone to try) or colleges or friends I’ve enjoyed each trip immensely and each trip has been like taking one step closer to myself.
One of the realization I’ve made (which is mostly going to sound like a cliché) is that the best thing one can wear is confidence, and when you’re feeling comfortable in with yourself and aligned its going to show regardless what you’re wearing. The clothes are a reflection of you, who you chose to be. While reflecting over the past decisions I’ve made in terms of clothes, its very clear that they reflect me.
As I mentioned here, my love for Australian brands are growing in a rapid pace. Just look at this amazing little black dress, its chic and sophisticated with its samurai kimono inspired front yet edgy with the cut-out in the back. Others may not see it, or maybe they do but most importantly – I do and I love how comfortable and chic this Third Form dress makes me feel.

Its easy to get overwhelmed when talking about a new season and trends from all the trend reports and must-have lists. However, with the right sort of mindset one can easily sift and sort what to focus and why. Let’s face it, its doesn’t have to be overwhelming and here’s a few of my tips.
1. Neutral Colours
Although I am a big advocate for black, I do enjoy contrast so I would suggest focusing on finding items with neutral colours if you’re not planning to go grand. Accent colours will come and go, but a neutral palette is always classic, hence usable in seasons to come.
What’s better than being cozy and chic at the same time, while not freezing? You tell me. But lets elaborate, we started seeing more knitwear last year and ever since brands have been creating interesting A/W collections. My current personal favourite in knits is this brand.
On the hughstreet side, this brand is a great option because they’re A/W collection is filled with nice knitwear options i various colours and cuts.
I am a firm believer of investing in versatile separates, but if you’re able to find a set that is not only great when wearing the pieces together but also separately, then you have a double winner.

I have always been delighted at the
prospect of a new day, a fresh try,
one more start, with perhaps a bit
of magic waiting somewhere
behind the morning.

It’s great being back in one of my favourite cities, this place has a tendency to light a spark inside and fill me with so much joy. Every morning, I woke up with excitement although the lack of hours of sleep. Just the sight of the white buildings behind my white cotton curtain made me jump out of bed.
Just the sight of the sun rising over the rooftops, overhearing vague conversations in french from people passing outside the hotel and observing how the city came to life was beautiful. I could easily spend hours at our terrace if it hadn’t it been for our busy schedule.
Just being able to start the day taking in the beauty of the city made me feel privileged and grateful. Hopefully, one day I will be able to stay longer and who knows, maybe one day I will live there for a while. But for this trip, being able to wake up with the city while enjoying a cup of coffee on the terrace was just precious.
Traveling is all about learning new things and expanding your perspectives, over the years I’ve learned to pick up positive traits from different cultures through out my trips and time abroad. In France I found myself amazed by how effortlessly chic the Parisian women are.
One thing that became very clear was the pace in Paris, although this capital is filled with life it struck me how people were moving in a much slower pace than expected. These beautiful mornings were not just a tranquil moment before the day started, they were a good reminder to add some tranquility to every morning, regardless of were I am.

Its fascinating how different cities can evoke different sides within, each time you revisit, a new sides comes to life. This was my third time visiting Paris, just the thought feels strange because it feels like I have lived here before. Its that feeling of coming home, yet reality hits me with the truth. I can’t deny that a big part of me want to live in here for a while and hopefully, some day that dream will come true.
After weeks of traveling, Paris felt like the big finale. Not only because Fashion Month ends with PFW as the city is buzzing with fashion happenings and shows, but also because I had the pleasure to meet up with my friend Payzee from London to share another fashion week together.
Being back brought me a tremendous amount of joy and inspiration, it’s magical to be able to tap into that feeling of instant alignment. For me, its gives me a sense of freedom which also translates in how I get dressed. Is it possible that one city can make one feel so liberated to the point that one feels no barriers? I can’t deny that a big part of me want to live in Paris for a while and hopefully, someday that dream will come true. Until then, I will take each opportunity I can to revisit. Let’s face it, I’ve truly understood why Paris is a good idea.
